Maitland Repertory Theatre Presents ‘All My Sons’ by Arthur Miller
A compelling portrait of flawed, captivating characters, ‘All My Sons’ was Miller’s first major success as a playwright in 1947. Today, its politics and its impact remain as relevant and devastating as ever.
They look like a mid century American success story as he runs the business, she runs the home, and their son will inherit it all. But there is something rotten in the Keller household and secrets have a way of getting out.
Director Pip Thoroughgood brings to life one of the great dramatic marriages, that of Joe and Kate Keller in Arthur Miller’s classic about the corruption of the American Dream. Forged by a master craftsman, every word and every action has a consequence.
In the years following World War II, the Kellers wait for their MIA son Larry to turn up alive. No matter how unlikely his return, Kate cannot give up hope.
Chris, their surviving son, has fallen in love with his brother’s fiance Ann. On a visit to the Keller family home, their controversial romance opens up shallow wounds. Amidst accusations of war crimes and the impending reality that Larry is never coming home, the confrontation that follows exposes secrets and lies that are too big to be forgiven.
